It is an exciting time for all the patients in the Illinois Medical Cannabis Pilot Program. New medical cannabis products are being developed on a regular basis. This means that each dispensary will have an influx of new products to offer their patients. Here are some of the new products that we, at Midwest Compassion Center, are proud to offer:
Mary’s Medicinal Transdermal Patches and Gel Pens
Research shows that transdermal delivery is the most effective method of delivering cannabis to the body. Since it enters the blood stream directly, almost nothing is lost. It has a nearly 100% bioavailability. A standard 10mg patch may be equivalent to an 80mg edible. The effects of the patches last from 6-12 hours. Best applied at the ankle or the wrist.
Each patch is 10mg and measures 2″ x 2″. It can be used entirely or cut into halves or quarters. The following patches are now available:
- CBD Patch
- CBD/THC 1:1 Patch
- THC Indica
- THC Sativa
- THCa Patch
- CBD Gel Pen
- Indica Gel Pen
- Sativa Gel Pen
The pens were designed as an accompaniment to the patches. They are ideal for managing breakthrough pain, or for creating blended cannabinoid ratios. The light gel is placed directly on the skin and gently rubbed in for rapid relief.
Still considered a bud/nug, popcorn flowers are smaller than large colas/buds and weigh significantly less. The popcorn buds are the size of a popped kernel of popcorn but offer nearly the same potency as whole flowers. This will appeal especially to those on a fixed budget. Pain and symptom relief at a reduced cost!
